Statement on California Senate Bill 246 by Western States Petroleum Association President Catherine Reheis-Boyd:

“In the midst of California’s large budget surplus, this is an unnecessary tax that will impact businesses and consumers and harm our state’s economy. California voters have already rejected this bad idea because they understand it would increase costs, devastate jobs, local services, and compromise our state’s sustainable energy future.

“California’s oil and gas industry is already one of the highest taxed industries in the nation, contributing $42 billion in federal, state and local taxes.”
